  THE DRIVE TO THE COORDINATES that the hard drive had given them was peaceful and, as they drove, Andrea took to admiring the scenery from the window. It seemed like months had passed since she'd last felt relaxation like this. It was almost too good to be true.

  Wrapping her arms around herself, the female clung to the memory. With everything that was going on around them, she wanted to savour this moment. It may have just been the last time she'd ever feel it.

  Andy bit her lip, mind full of countless thoughts. She wanted a distraction, so, she found it in staring out at the trees as they passed by. Judging by the silence from the backseat, the brunette assumed that Natasha had fallen asleep to the comforting atmosphere as well. Though, she could only wish sleep came that easily for her.

  However, Andrea found herself proven wrong when a voice spoke up from behind. "Can I ask you guys a question?" The brunette felt her heart stutter to a stop as she jolted in her seat. With her eyes wide, she whirled around to face Natasha. Of all things, she assumed that the fear of a heart-attack would be the least of her worries.

  "Which, you don't have to answer." The redhead continued, looking past Andrea's obvious shock as the Jones girl recomposed herself. Clearly, there were more important things on the Romanoff woman's mind. "But, if you don't that's kind of like you're still answering-" Andy smiled softly at the rambling.

  It was cute to see Nat hesitant to ask them something. She simply wasn't the type to skirt around conversations. But, before she could continue, Steve cut her off. "What is it?" He questioned, giving her a look that said get to the point. Natasha grinned, "Was that your guys' first kiss since 1945?" She finally asked, glancing between the two with little-to-no shame in her eyes. Rather, she seemed amused by the conversation.

  Andy couldn't help but heave a huff of laughter. "I'm insulted." She told her, playfully shouldering the Romanoff woman as she gave a teasing smile. The brunette would have liked to think that Natasha had a little more faith in her dating expertise. After all, it wasn't as if she was completely unfeeling.

  It was just that, with their jobs and all, it was hard to work a love-life into the equation─ and she wasn't exactly interested in starting either. Sure, she'd dated here and there. But, none of them had ever delved into anything serious. As Andy turned back to the window, she couldn't help but frown as she realized how lonely that sounded.

  Though, with her memory flickering back to her past love, the Jones girl felt her heart falter. Of all her recollections, both past and present, she knew that she had never loved anyone as much as she loved Bucky─ and she probably never would. He was her first everything and Andy couldn't help but wonder if she would only ever feel for him.
